Duck Egg Blue Vanity


This gorgeous, vintage vanity came as part of set, along with two twin beds, a night stand and a dresser.  I decided to break up the set for a hair dresser that shops with us at Loot. All of her hair stations are vintage vanities and she had been looking everywhere for another vintage vanity with a mirror.  I sold her this one and custom painted it for her.


I actually forgot to take a before picture of the vanity, but here is a before of the night stand from the set.


Here is the vanity with the mirror after I painted it.


I painted the vanity with Duck Egg Chalk Paint and Old White on the trim.


After I clear waxed this piece I mixed some Coco Chalk Paint with clear wax to make a colored wax.  I applied this over the paint.  I love using Coco as a wash or in wax because it is so subtle, but definitely adds some depth.


I painted the rest of the set Paris Gray and White.  I am waiting for a small piece that I need to order from a woodworker to repair the dresser, so I will be revealing the set soon!


I painted over all the hardware with Duck Egg and then waxed them with the Coco colored wax too.  I finished up by lightly distressing all over.  


It is hard to tell in the pictures, but the Coco wax did a great job of adding an aged patina, especially to the white trim.
